Due to the ongoing and destructive wildfires affecting many communities and service organizations in the state, the Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs is extending the application deadline for the Veteran Services Grant.
Grant proposals will now be due to ODVA by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11. The original deadline was Sept. 30.
The Veteran Services Grant Program is aimed at expanding and enhancing services available to veterans in Oregon communities. The program awards one-time grants to organizations starting at $25,000 and up to $250,000 through a competitive grant process.
Proposals must provide direct services to veterans that help improve outcomes in areas such as health or behavioral health care, housing security, employment opportunities or stability, education and training opportunities, transportation accessibility and availability, or other critical services within a community.
Organizations eligible to apply for this grant must be designated as a nonprofit or veteran organization, or a tribal, regional or local government.
Should you have any questions regarding the program or this recent change, please contact ODVA Grants Coordinator Jacqueline Kemp at 503-580-9049 or email email@example.com.
